Breezy aqua barn board walls makes this cottage bedroom feel like a special hideaway right in your own home. A barn board backdrop can suit a fully rustic decor, or the slightly more refined habitat above created with framed botanical prints, fun striped pillows and candlestick lamps with fluted shades. We’re sharing some of our favorite Cottage Home pieces that can help you recreate this look and give you ideas to go in other directions.

The main attraction of this room is the Cottage Wicker Headboard, which mixes and matches with many other materials, and comes in twin, queen, full and king sizes. Available in over 400 fabric choices, our Shoreline Throw Pillow comes in both square and rectangular, and is perfect for porch, living room and bedroom accessorizing. Our go-anywhere Country Farm Harvest Bench is fully customizable, and is a handy piece to have in a guest bedroom. A part of our Country Farm Furniture Collection, it is available in 40 standard colors and 6 stains. Whether you’re attracted to beadboard or scalloped edges, these cottage-friendly options come together in the fully customizable Pemaquid 1 Drawer Nightstand. And the nightstand is a perfect place for the Tea Time Distressed White Table Lamp to perch.

Scarlet red — a force to be reckoned with — does not have to dominate your cottage decor. Paired with the white painted furniture of a cottage dining room or the earthy tones of a lodge living room, this deep red punctuates the neutrality of a room in a powerful yet poised way. Incorporating scarlet can be as easy as adding red throw pillows to a white slipcovered sofa, a square red floral tablecloth diagonally over the center of a long planked farmhouse table, or a red painted end table next to a whitewashed coffee table. The red at the top left of our Color Board is one option for just such an end table from our Country Classics Collection, just one of our many furniture lines offering various styles of occasional tables.

Our featured scarlet-compatible wool rugs range from one with a solid, slightly rusty red background with a subtle and dainty border to two other boldly patterned rugs worked in many colors. Earthy colors such as mossy green and beige in the rug design, along with red, allows many color possibilities for accessories. A rug such as the 100% wool Fort Apache Sandstone Hand Tufted Rug lets you easily tie scarlet in with beige, pale aqua, indigo or even a brownish green. The solid and striped fabrics we have pictured from our Shoreline Slipcovered Fabric Collection are just two possible accompaniments to go with the overall color scheme.
